Multi System Complication Due To Kidney Failure

2014-10-30 01:18

Multi System Complication Due To Kidney FailureWhat happens if my kidneys fail completely? Irreversible kidney failure is sometimes called end-stage renal disease, or ESRD. When the kidneys are unable to de-toxify the blood, waste products like urea and creatinine accumulate in the blood. Besides, many other body systems will be affected by kidney failure. This article focuses on what other body systems are affected by renal failure. Follow us to find the answer.

1. Respiratory system

When kidney function declines, excessive water and metabolic toxins will accumulate in the body. In this condition, respiratory system will be affected by declined kidney function. Shortness of breath, metallic taste in your mouth, pulmonary edema or pleural effusion are all signs of abnormal respiratory system.

2. Urinary system

Urinary system is not an isolated organ and is composed of kidney, ureter, bladder and urethra. Kidney is responsible for filtering blood. In this way, blood and wastes will be separated. The purified blood will flow out of kidneys through renal vein and wastes flow into bladder through ureter. Finally, waste fluid will be removed out of our body through urethra. As we mentioned above, kidney is one of parts of urinary system. Therefore, once kidneys are damaged or injured, urinary system will also be affected. Frequent urination at night, feel urge to urinate or having burning pain feeling when urinate are all symptoms of urinary system caused by renal failure.

3. Cardiovascular disease

Patients with kidney failure have a high burden of cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. This is because injured kidneys will speed up hardening the arteries and increasing the risk of stroke, heart attack and heart failure.

4. electrolytes imbalance

With kidney failure, injured kidneys fail to filter out excessive chemicals such as potassium, phosphorus and acids. So these chemicals are easy to be higher than normal. In this condition, you may experience irregular heartbeat, muscle weakness and other problems.

5. Bone disease

Bone disease is common to be seen in kidney failure patients. Calcium low and phosphorus high are easy to cause bone disease in renal failure patients.

In summary, with renal failure, many body systems will be affected. We cannot list all of them here. If you want to learn more, you can consult our experts directly.
